TLT - My Challenge - Fairies

Well hello everyone...glad you've made it back to another TLT. So what about the blog hop??? Judging by the comments you guys had a lot of fun lol. I know we had fun reading them and picking the winners...and boy were there a lot of them! Make sure you check the Challenge Blog to see if you've won some Ladybug Candy or the Blog Hop prizes OR the Challenge prizes! I told you there were a lot lol.
The winner of my candy is.... Marianne!!!
Congratulations me with your address and I'll get your prize (and surprise!) off to you asap.
Now for today's challenge of Fairies chose by Moi lol.
When I was at the craft fair at the SECC last month I picked up some Shake It shaker card pouches on a stand that had some gorgeous ornaments ... I'm annoyed I didn't take pictures so I kinda just winged it lol. See what you think...

I chose the gorgeous Ice Skating Ruby to go in my shaker. I stamped her twice on PTI cs and coloured them in with my Copics adding a bit of Glamour Dust to her wings and mountains and snow glitter to her coat and hat. After cutting both images with circle Nesties I strung some invisible thread between the two images. I placed the images in one half of the shaker pouch, added a bit of irredescent snow glitter and tried (and failed) to glue the two pouch halves together with Glossy Accents. I ended up using strips of double sided tape to stick them together which worked a treat :-D  I cut out two fancy die cuts with my Nesties then cut a circle out of the middle of these for the pouch to go through. Once that was done I taped the other side of the fancy die cut to the other side, added the bow at the top, the Swarovski crystals around the edges and the sentiment at the bottom.

Not a great picture but I wanted to show you the depth of the pouch.

I'll definitely be hanging this on my tree...might even make another one or two!

The DT have been busy and I can promise you nothing but stunnalicious inspiration! We'd love to see your fairy creations so why not enter our challenge?

Thanks for stopping by today
